Well, I have been enjoying my extra time off! This is evidenced by me actually having a menu plan for the next week as well as my shopping list and coupons matched up! I tried to plan my menu around the meats I had in the freezer from our January Angel Food box.
This is what I have planned so far:
Sunday: Steak and Gravy
Monday: Broiled Tilapia and Parmesan
Baked corn as side dish
Tuesday: Beef Short Ribs
Wednesday: Comfort Meatballs (A Pioneer Woman Recipe from Woman's Day mag)
Thursday: we usually go to a friend's house for dinner
Friday: Chicken Spaghetti (another Pioneer Woman Recipe from Woman's Day mag)
Saturday: Noodle Frittata (Woman's Day recipe)
Sunday: Beefy Noodles (Woman's Day recipe)
Monday: Tuna Noodle Salad (Woman's Day recipe)
You will notice I didn't put but one side dish. We usually just have fruit or veggies, nothing too exciting or elaborate. So, do you have a menu planned? I am endeavoring to make our monthly food bill be around $250. We have been going out to eat too much.
